"Hi Jessica. It is a blast from the past. I have rejoined BTL and a few others have slowly showed up too. I am hoping that maybe you will too. I kind of miss my old support network and since I am attempting to lose the weight I've regained (can…"

"What great results you've had with Charlene Extreme. I just might try that one after I do my 2nd round of Jillian Michael's Body Revolution. I do like Beach Body Products. I've done Power 90 & got GREAT results. I did Insanity…"

"Chalean extreme. I like the chocolate Shakeology. I add spinach and banana to make it more filling. It's pretty tasty!"

Quite Possibly the World's Best Lunch!

Posted on August 8, 2013 at 12:29pm 5 Comments


Nitrate-free bacon, tomato from my garden, mashed avocado ( lemon juice, onion and garlic powders. It's addictive!) atop two sliced of toasted Ezekiel Sesame bread.  Green Lite Bites Cucumber Basil Tomato salad too! I was full for hours!

        I grew up eating bacon and tomato sandwiches.…


On to Day 3!

Posted on August 7, 2013 at 7:53am 3 Comments

       It was weird having a 'Rest Day', yesterday. I felt as if I were cheating!  But, I've noticed I'm sleeping better and have more energy. Not sure if it's the clean eating or Shakeology, maybe a combination of both, but I'll take it!

I do NOT like the workout bands. First off, they are kind of awkward. Secondly, the cats feel compelled to 'help'. Here. I had to take a pic.…


What do you MEAN the last time I was on here was in MAY?!

     Ummmmm...Excuse me? Where did summer go? And would you believe that I really think of you guys almost every day?

      Weeeeeeell, there has been a shift in the fitness front here at Casa de Man Cub and Varmint. Long story short, one of my fellow female firefighter pals did some serious, awesome transforming of herself via Beachbody and Chalean Extreme. She has started her own little group and I'm in!  Clean eating and working out. No Points,, just portion control and minimally…


Tomorrow's Wednesday Weigh In....

Posted on May 7, 2013 at 3:10pm 2 Comments

 Stay motivated! Make good decisions! Yesterday kind of saw me get out of hand...Pizza for lunch....Drumstick for dinner ( no, NOT the chicken type! It was indeed Ice cream...), mindless munching because I went from still full from lunch to " OMAGAWD! Must eat NOW!"  That was a direct result of my deciding at 3pm that the living room carpet must GO! It was here when we moved in 2, almost 3 years ago. Something else has wee-wee'd on it. My gray tabby cat, Bonnie was doing her best to…


Happy New Month!!!

      Anyone else stay up last night to watch the ball drop? No?!?!

Well, here we have  brand, spanking new month! I did some quick math and if I keep my poop in a group, I can make a liar out of my drivers license info. In the OPPOSITE direction that it is lying now!  August 22 is D-day.

Yesterday went well, except for an evening munchfest on some veggie chips. I managed to cease and desist, retired upstairs to fold clothes. I am TERRIBLE at getting laundry folded and put…

Hi Jessica,

I am not exactly a fan of broccoli, but I found this simple soup when I had some broccoli to use up. It is super easy and even hubby likes it and he doesn't do veggies.

4 cups broth 

1 onion chopped

1 large bunch fresh broccoli

4 oz bow tie noodles (or whatever pasta you prefer)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

Bring broth to boil

Add noodles & onion cook 5-6 minutes

Remove soup pan from heat

Add broccoli & soy sauce


Let sit about 20 minutes


We have sourdough buns with it. They are fat free and taste good, but any bread is good for dunking. Maybe Mancub would like this.

Hey Jessica. I am glad that I made you chuckle with my scale comment. I am glad I got a new one, but man it is not moving. At least I am not gaining so I can't give up yet.

Thanks Jessica! 

How are you doing these days?

I do not premix the lemon water. I leave a cup of water out overnight with a lemon beside it as a reminder. When I get up, I mix the lemon and room temp water while another cup of water is heating up over the stove. I then mix them both together, when the other one gets warm, and then I drink it.

Hi Jessica.  I was so happy to see your comments and I'm holding you to sticking around here just like I know I have to!  It really does makes a difference. 


Now fill me in on what's going on in your world!!!

How often does THAT happen?
